Marie McFadden Deans spent her adult life fighting against the death penalty. Her work took her onto South Carolina and Virginia's death rows, where she became an advocate and a friend for the condemned men. And her dedication took her to the death house, where she stood "death watch" with 34 men. Marie's work took a terrible toil on her health, and she died in April of 2011 at the relatively young age of 70.  

Marie is buried in her family plot in the historic Sardinia-Gable Cemetery in Clarendon County, South Carolina. Because of the very modest size of her estate, Marie currently does not have a head stone on her grave.  Her friends, family and colleagues  are now raising money for a fitting memorial.  Would you be willing to donate money to help us purchase a headstone so we can honor this wonderful woman and dedicated death penalty abolitionist?  Our hope to raise $2500 by July 1, 2017.
